It's Pharell's "Sex Chair."
I really am getting stupider every second, thanks in no part to retarded stuff like this flooding my brain.
<---------- But this article makes me feel a bit better.

if I were this POOR WOMAN. Her husband clandestinely changed their newborn baby's name to "Sarah McCain Palin," without telling her.
From the Times News of Tennessee:
"While that’s the name father Mark Ciptak of Elizabethton put on documents for his baby girl’s birth certificate, it isn’t the name he and his wife originally agreed on. And it isn’t the name his wife, Layla, thought the baby was given.
“We actually came up with the name Ava Grace, and I secretively went and got another set of forms to send to (Social Security officials and the Tennessee Department of Health), and as of this time, she (Layla) still doesn’t realize what I’ve done. I haven’t broken the news to her yet,” Ciptak said.
“As of right now, I’m just trying to get up enough nerve to tell her what I’ve done and hope for the best. I hope I’m still living to tell the tale tomorrow. She thought it was a done deal with Ava Grace."
May I also add that the Times News is my new favorite resource for journalistic integrity and relevance. Check out the latest headline on their home page:
CMJ kicks off next week, and if I don't collapse in a heap of exhaustion on some sheer LES side street, it will be a ton of fun. If the screenshots above aren't floating your boat, then go ahead and CLICK HERE for part one (tuesday, wednesday, thursday) or HERE for part two (friday + saturday.)
And remember to check out freewilliamsburg.com for my regular coverage of CMJ shows and whatnot next week, with plenty of photos and good stuffz.

Britney's new song is stupendous, and the video makes it 10 times better. It premiered on 20/20 over the weekend (of all places!) and it's basically a hybrid of her video for "Toxic," mixed with her commercials for that trashy Curious perfume, with some concepts from her other videos of yesteryear. Also there is a 4/20 reference for no apparent reason. LUVS her.
But hey, she is looking better, and I think everyone is excited about it. At least me and my gays and mah girlzzz are excited!
Can't wait for "Circus" to be released in December wooooooooooh!

I took this picture with my phone, from a still frame of Sunday's E! News broadcast, which was sheer disrespectful trash. Debbie and I were literally in tears because we were laughing so hard at the video editing of DJ AM spinning at his turntables, superimposed over a background showing the fiery wreckage of his plane crash.
OMFG, dance partyyyyyyy! Yahhh!
Poor lil' guy.

M.I.A. is officially the baddest bitch in the world. We don't even need to get into her artistic prowess or qualifications, because everyone knows she's extraordinary. Matter of fact, she is the only celebrity (besides David Bowie) that I have ever spotted in public and been genuinely star-struck by, and she still never fails to amaze me. My semi shall not fade....
Case in point: last night. She hopped on stage at the Diesel XXX party, pregnant as-all-hell, rocking out at 1 am when I could barely muster the energy to stand up straight. I was forced to acknowledge once again that M.I.A. is indeed the coolest female ever, and now she will give birth to the coolest baby ever that will hopefully beat up Ben Affleck's troll-child, because that is ONE FUGLY DUCKLING.
Thanks to my friend Marklesparkle for the photo, you can check out more at FreeWilliamsburg.com, the best website around!

I waste a TON of my time watching bad TV, or reading trash magazines, or listening to cheesy pop music on my iPod while aimlessly wandering. I admit it. I don't need to be doing scholarly/worthwhile stuff all of the time, or most of the time. I enjoy sheer trash!
But this Zooey Deschanel person needs to stop, because she is NOT ok and I'm tired of people not questioning her shittiness and lack of talent. The only reason that she ever gets any positive press is because nerdy editorial guys who have placed this archetypical status on her, as this quiet, non-threatening, artsy-type gal who miiiight give them a chance, in their dreams, find her somehow acceptable or even likeable. So painful. In articles about her singing abilities or film roles, someone always has to toss in that "Zooey Deschanel is like this girl I used to have a crush on in high school, but better!" line. Calling her sheer trash would be elevating her to a platform she doesn't deserve whatsoever, she is just annoying as fuck and needs to either learn how to sing or act or at least go away.
Watching her in The Happening was like watching a pile of bricks doing a monologue. She made Mark Wahlberg look like Anthony Hopkins. Listening to that horrendous She + Him album is like listening to Kermit the Frog shitting all over M. Ward's (once viable, now destroyed) talent.
She needs to go away. I'll freak out if any more of my time is wasted on her. No puedo.

Because honestly, that video is the most fucking heartwarming thing EVER.
(explanation: today my new obsession has been BBCs "Planet Earth," which I am netflixing and am 100% enamored with. I've only watched two episodes, but the goddam bears and bear cubs from all over the world just keep getting cuter and cuter. The weird artificial Andean flute music/keyboard loop in the background are thank GOD not in the actual episodes, but unfortunately that was the only YouTube shite I could find for this one).
